5402. MONEY BILLS, Parliament and.—[continued].

The right of levying money, in whatever way, being * * * exercised by the Commons, as their exclusive
office, it follows, as a necessary consequence,
that they may also exclusively direct its application.
“Cujus est dare, ejus est disponere
is an elementary principle both of
law and of reason. That he who gives, May
direct the application of the gift: or, in other
words, may dispose of it; that if he may give
absolutely, he may also carve out the conditions,
limitations, purposes, and measure of
the gift, seems as evidently true as that the
greater power contains the lesser.—
